      It was an awesome surprise to see my 75 year old Mom and her "road dog" Monte enjoying the MLK day parade. She takes a lot of pleasure in being able to watch it from her front yard. She looks forward to this event every year, and I am thankful for this snapshot. Who would I contact to get a copy of it? Thanks

      It was great to see my 75 yr old mother in one of the MLK photos, every year she waits outside her home to give thanks and to see all the wonderful people participating in the parade. That is one her special occassions she looks forward year after year.
